The store was part of a parade of shop and traded here for 55 years, closing in December 2008. You can see in the above photo it had the peppermint blue window and door frames.
A Home Bargains traded here for a while before they moved to bigger premises.
Today an Alder Hey charity shop has opened in the former Old Swan Woolworths building.

I recall this store shop front doors being Ram-Raided and the vehicle getting stuck in between the door jambs. Unable to get out of the car, the occupants had to sit there until the Fire Brigade arrived to drag their car out and release them.
